As a youth, I took part in many deleterious behaviors that are apparent when looking at my criminal history. I hired David to work on obtaining expungement for my dismissal charges (Yes people, even though you’re not convicted, they are listed in your criminal history) and a pardon for 3 convictions. All of the charges/convictions occurred between 1999-2001. Yes, I had changed as an individual (medical school) but it was still a somewhat daunting task to obtain a clean record. Mr. Bahuriak handled my cases flawlessly while keeping my involvement to a minimum and keeping me well informed about the process ahead. I would highly recommend David to anyone who is seeking legal services. He is a down to earth, compassionate individual who treats you like a unique individual and not just a case folder labeled with your name. Additionally, David is very intelligent and proficient in his field. David changed my life by helping me achieve my goal. Thanks to David, I am currently in medical school without the added stress of wondering if I would be able to practice after graduation due to my past criminal history.

I met David Bahuriak when I made a horrible mistake that landed me in jail. A mutual friend contacted David who came to meet me in jail. After helping to arrange my bail, I agreed to let David represent me. I am very glad I did. David was realistic about my situation and let me know the dire situation I had gotten myself into. He explained to me the best and worst case scenarios and what I needed to do to achieve the former. His expertise was apparent all through the process, but most visible to me in the court room. Always very prepared, with all I's dotted and T's crossed. Much more so than the other attorneys in the room it seemed. This allowed him to make his presentations in a clear and concise manner. Confident, without ever coming off as arrogant, I doubt I could have been better represented.
Throughout the entire process, he was assisted by his staff, that also interacted with me many times, including attorney Joe Rutala who I found to be very sensitive, competent and reassuring.
I certainly hope I never need their services again, however if I ever do, I won't hesitate to call upon the Bahuriak team again. Highly recommended.

David Bahuriak is a Super lawyer in true sense. I retained him for a very difficult and twisted case with almost no hope whatsoever. He was able to turn it around all the way. I trust him not as a lawyer but as a real friend. He took care of even the smallest details and was always on top of every issue. He had a very realistic approach and never made false promises and whatever he committed, he fulfilled it. If you want a lawyer that is not only extremely knowledgeable, experienced, aggressive but also dedicated, focused empathetic and above all a great friend, David Bahuriak falls in all of those categories. He is more than 100% worth your money. It is really hard to find a lawyer like him these days.
